Co-ops and Copywork {Episode 87} | The Homeschool Sisters Podcast

The sisters are back with Season 8!

Listen in as they catch up – they promise this isn’t an eye doctor podcast now – and dive into co-ops and copywork.

Are either necessary? When do you need them and when can you do without?

Cait and Kara are sharing thoughts and their own experience!

This episode is sponsored by, Native, and Thrive Causemetics.


CHALKPASTEL.COM is a homeschool family of three generations with awesome no-fuss video art lessons for all ages. Lessons are taught by the mother-daughter team, Nana (Lucia Hames), and her daughter, Tricia Hodges.

It all started when Nana taught her five grandchildren around the kitchen table more than a decade ago. This homeschooling family is all about frugal! You won’t find an expensive, intimidating list of art supplies. Just add chalk pastels and construction paper!

You ARE an Artist lessons include everything from seasonal celebrations, tea time, favorite books, hymns, nature, sharks, art techniques, acrylics, American landmarks, I Drew It Then I Knew It history art lessons, preschool AND even the far reaches of space! Nana has a series on drawing maps, famous artists, composers, presidents, and favorite hymns. Clubhouse members get a bank of art lessons for all ages (currently valued at over $3,330), bonuses, a wonderful community, and new art lessons added monthly.

In addition to all of that, Nana shares new LIVE Master Classes each month. These classes offer a bit more of a challenge to those who are looking for it. Maybe some acrylics and other surprises along the way. Plus – we’ve shared this before: Nana has a podcast! It’s called  From Nana’s Back Porch and you can find it in your favorite podcast app.
